Euro 2024 – Portugal vs Czech Republic | Match Info, Preview & Lineup

One of the top contenders for this summer’s European Championship, Portugal, will kick off their Euro 2024 journey on Tuesday evening against the Czech Republic at Leipzig Stadium.

Portugal is seen as a strong favorite to win the tournament in Germany, while the Czech Republic aims to advance from a group that also includes Turkey and Georgia. Portugal’s head coach, Martinez, has several tough choices to make for his team selection on Tuesday, given the squad’s depth.

While some key players will start on the bench, 39-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo is set to lead the attack, hoping to add to his 130 international goals. Ronaldo is on the brink of making history by appearing in his sixth European Championship and aiming to become the oldest player to score in the competition.

Veteran defender Pepe, who will be 41 years and 113 days old when Portugal begins their campaign, is expected to start in defense, making him the oldest player in the tournament’s history.

Rafael Leao and Bernardo Silva might join Ronaldo in the attack, with Bruno Fernandes, Vitinha, and Joao Palhinha in midfield. On the Czech side, midfielder Michal Sadilek had to withdraw from the squad due to a bike injury before the tournament started.

West Ham United’s Vladimir Coufal and Tomas Soucek are set to start, and Jan Kutcha is expected to play in the attack on Tuesday night.

Patrik Schick, the squad’s top scorer with 19 goals, will lead the Czech offense, aiming to add to his five European Championship goals. Adam Hlozek, with two international goals, is another potential attacking option against Portugal.
